Performance and handling
The 2021 GLA sparks delight on every drive with its responsive performance and nimble handling. Under the hood is a 2.0-liter turbo inline-four engine that delivers a peppy 221 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque.

The 2021 GLA also rides on a four-wheel fully independent suspension that achieves the ideal balance of comfort and agile precision.
If you’re seeking more control, four DYNAMIC SELECT settings — ECO, Comfort, Sport and Individual — allow you to customize the vehicle’s performance to suit your tastes and the conditions you’re facing. For superior traction, choose the 2021 GLA 250 4MATIC®. This model’s 4MATIC® all-wheel-drive system swiftly transmits variable torque to the front and rear axles, maximizing grip when roads are wet or icy.

Stylish touches on the interior include available natural grain or Carbon Structure trim, brushed stainless steel pedals and aluminum shift paddles. The power-adjustable front seats come with three-position memory and comfortable MB-Tex upholstery, with upgrades like heat, ventilation, multicontour support and leather trim available. The available power Panorama roof stretches across both rows, letting in light and scenery for everyone aboard.
To complement its stylish looks, the 2021 GLA presents a spectrum of upscale amenities to elevate your travels. SmartKey with KEYLESS-START makes it easy to enter and power up the engine. The available heated steering wheel with Nappa leather trim is a treat for cold hands.
